Thank you for being honest enough to post this. I've been feeling the same way for a while now. It's scary. Have always taken good care of myself, but I think that after 55 years of diabetes management, my body is not as strong as it used to be. It's also hard when I try to talk to family, friends, and health care providers. Too often I get the response that all I have to do is take better care of myself. My response is, "One day you should follow me around with a video camera and at the end of the day, I'd like to hear your opinion again." I hope you're feeling better. Will keep you and all of us in my prayers as it sure would be nice one day not to be in pain. Good luck and God bless you.

Are you on insulin ?
If you are the next time you give a shot give it in your thigh midway to your knee
It has worked for me .
Hope your feeling better soon
